Rising star Halle Bailey has been cast as Ariel in the upcoming live action film, ‘The Little Mermaid.’
Well all I can say is that I am happy that his young lady is getting a chance to place such a phenomenal role. I am a bit puzzled by the response. Does this bring up a legitament issue, or is it well to do over nothing. No matter how you feel about the situation I can just recall a certain quote from Sanford and Son. Fred Sanford was arguing Jesus was black. Fred said in his iconicity hilarious way that Jesus could not stay in Jerusalem for 30 some odd years with no hat on and stay white. So after reading some of tweets about Ariel should stay white because of the original context and historically/geographically accuracy of the story. I am like that is very interesting. As a film buff I can tell you I have never or rarely seen Jesus or Cleopatra depicted as people of color….Soo…If we are concerned about accuracy….Well you get it. We would love to hear what you think about this issue.
